I love to get super glam and all dolled up for the holidays! I also love to curl my hair, so when I got the chance too work with KISS and their InstaWave Automatic Curler, I jumped! It is the coolest thing! KISS InstaWave is a fully automatic tangle-free curler that instantly creates beautiful curls, and it’s very easy for anyone to use.

A few of the features of this wand include: a Curl Dial with left/right curl directions (for using on either side of your head), 2 heat settings with a low/high switch with maximum temperature of 420, and no crimps from a clamp! Plus, it automatically shuts off after 90 minutes, so you don’t burn the house down. I can’t tell you how many times my former roommate would call me to see if she remembered to turn off her curling iron!

I have used it several times since I received it, and there was only a slight learning curve. I am used to using a curling iron almost horizontally, where as this one needs to be held vertically in order to capture your hair and twirl it around. Once you have this down, it’s unbelievably simple and saves a lot of time! The curls come out really tight after only a few seconds on the wand, and no crimping because there is no clamp to hold the hair down, it just stays around the barrel until you guide it straight down to remove your hair. For my favorite look, I comb out the curls after, I have all 7 steps outlined below.

Here are the How-to Instructions for using the KISS InstaWave

  • Hold InstaWave vertically
  • Simply place section of hair on the InstaWave curling rod
  • Touch the Curl Dial either left or right, and the InstaWave instantly and automatically catches and curls the hair
  • Hold for 5-10 seconds, hold longer for tighter curls and less for beachy waves
  • Pull the InstaWave down vertically, letting hair out

**Tip: Switch between curling right and curling left to create the most natural looking curls

Holiday Hair in 7 Steps, with SnapGinger!

  1. Get out your clip and section off your hair; I leave one bottom layer around my head to start
  2. Spray hair with a heat protecting spray to keep it safe.
  3. Curl the bottom layer, turning curls away from your face to get bouncy curls.
  4. After each layer is curled, spray with medium hold hair spray to lock in the curl.
  5. Curl the remaining layers on the top of your head. Repeat with hairspray and let set for a few minutes.
  6. For less of a tight curl and more of a wavy look, comb out the curls with a wide toothed comb. Comb as much as you like, until you get the look you’re after.
  7. Finish with a shine spray for ultimate glossy holiday hair!
